The most common type of headaches are the ones from stress, and can be really painful. In such cases, Peppermint and Lavender Essential Oils work best. Lavender has a really calming effect on the mind. It is used for treating headaches by most aromatherapists. You can pour a few drops in the bath, in the diffuser, or can even rub topically on your skin if mixed with a carrier oil such as Baobab or Jojoba Oil.
Rosemary is another Essential Oil frequently used by aromatherapists in treating anxiety, stress, and pain. Rubbing it on the skin (mixed with a carrier oil) helps improve blood circulation that treats muscle pain and therefore can help relieve headache pains especially brought on by muscle pain. You can use it with a carrier oil, such as baobab, jojoba or almond oil, or pour a few drops in the bathwater or diffuser. Avoid contact with eyes or open cuts.
Bergamot Essential Oil comes from a tree that has a strong lemon aroma used for both anxiety and pain, helpful to relieve headaches as well. According to research, Essential Oils aroma activates the “smell” receptors in our nose and sends signals to the brain that causes relaxation and thus can relieve headache pain.
Peppermint Essential Oil is a wonderful, long-term oil used for treating many conditions. It helps muscle, nerve, and headache pains by aromatherapists. It can be rubbed on the skin mixed with a carrier oil like Baobab or Jojoba, or used in a diffuser or bath.
